It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, and that’s mainly because I’ve been trying to figure out the next direction to take.
I have been traveling for over a year, but now the funds have almost run out and luckily my German work visa came in! So now it’s time to get my portfolio together and hope that I am not as bad at interviews as I think.
Now some photos from my latest trip to Spain! Barcelona was as amazing as I remembered, but sadly Madrid was cloudy, cold and rainy. It did have some pretty parks and interesting architecture, but nothing can hold a candle to Barcelona :)
I can add “Takes an excellent postcard photo” to my resume now.
Maybe I’ve visited one too many cities, but Madrid felt like a version I’d seen in all of them, plus we’d just come from Barcelona, which should be in another category it’s so amazing. The doors of this cathedral, however, had me at first sight. They were absolutely amazing. Each told a story in wonderful clay 3D. I wanted to steal one, take it home with me and hang it on my wall.
According to my tour guide (I can’t find any evidence that this story is actually part of greek myth…) Hercules fell in love with a mortal woman, but I guess the gods were bored that day, so they banished the poor woman on threat of death and cursed Hercules, so he could never find her. While searching for his love he stumbled across Sevilla. Liking it, he decided to stay. Of course, in the vein of Greek tragedy and a cruel twist of fate, the woman he had been searching for was right across the river, in the city of Triana, but he would never find her.
